Children are welcome at The Puli but there are no special facilities except babysitting, which can be arranged on request.


The Puli has one restaurant, Jing'An serving Western cuisine with an influx of Asian flavours. There is also the Long Bar and adjacent Garden Terrace where afternoon tea and evening cocktails are served. On the third floor, you will find the Anantara Spa with five treatment rooms, a state of the art gym, sauna and steam rooms, a Jacuzzi and the 25m infinity lap pool. The hotel is also home to The Library, a cosy space with open fireplace and great books to borrow.


With its excellent facilities there is lots to do in the hotel but it is also essential to venture out and explore Shanghai. This fast-paced city has lots to see; a visit to the historic Bund is a must and it is also worth visiting at night for electrifying views onto Pudong. The French Concession is also worth seeing with its quirky shops and cafés and important sights include the Yu Gardens, Shanghai Museum and the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Centre for a futuristic view of the city. By night venture out to the many incredible restaurants and bars in town and we can certainly make some recommendations for you.

By far the most stylish hotel in Shanghai. The huge open plan lobby with its huge bar and lo slung seating feels far more like London or the Lower East Side than Shanghai. The whole hotel in general has a very western ambiance with a very paired back and contemporary dcor in the rooms. The location is great close to the trendiest shopping area of the city and surrounded by designer shops all within walking distance. A great option for couples looking to be part of the fashionable crowd in Shanghai.


Sophie Jones (Staff)

The Puli has such a great urban retreat atmosphere about it. As soon as you walk in you leave the sound of traffic and the hustle and bustle of Shanghai behind and completely relax in this oasis. Full of slick clean lines and a feeling of the contemporary cool it is a great base in the fast pace city.

I stayed here on my first night in Shanghai and wish it had been for longer! I really liked the urban resort concept and I think this is a great idea and perfect for leisure travellers who do not need all the amenities of a larger more typical city hotel. Another unique element to The Puli is that you have four options for breakfast included complimentary in the room rate; breakfast in Jing'An, in-room dining, a continental breakfast at the Long Bar or takeaway breakfast - ideal if you need to catch an early flight.
